Greg Rusedski expressed regret at Novak Djokovic‘s withdrawal from the US Open via his Twitter account. Greg wrote: “It’s truly a shame that the strongest player in the world had to give up two Grand Slams in 2022″ in response to the well-known situation concerning the Serbian champion.
Clay Travis, a radio host, agreed with Nole: “Djokovic would have been the man to beat at the Australian Open and the US Open, and it is likely that he would have won at least one title. However, true to his principles, Djokovic has missed two majors this year. We are talking about two tournaments in which he would have been the favorite to win.
He has once again shown that he is a brave and consistent man, but at the same time, I can only deplore the stance of the United States government because hardcourt is his preferred surface, and he could have hoisted both trophies and stretched in the all-time Grand Slam standings.
There is no medical justification for refusing to admit him.”
This year, Novak Djokovic was compelled to skip two Grand Slam events. His decision to forego the coronavirus vaccination had a significant impact on his programming and seriously damaged his reputation.
The former world number one improved his season by taking home the eighth Wimbledon title of his career. In addition to matching his idol Pete Sampras, Nole has also closed the distance between him and Rafael Nadal in the Majors’ all-time rankings.
The US Open rules have not altered, despite the 21-time Grand Slam champion’s best efforts to play in the tournament. The Serbian veteran declared just before the draw that he would have to forfeit his final major of the year because he couldn’t make it to America.
The USTA then said that it was not possible to request an exemption for Djokovic. The American Federation indirectly retaliated after Tennys Sandgren’s severe charges that it had done nothing to assist Novak.
